In an experiment to study the properties of ethanoic acid, a student takes about 3 mL of ethanoic acid in a dry test tube. He adds an equal amount of distilled water to it and shakes the test tube well. After some time he is likely to observe that

(A) a colloid is formed in the test tube.

(B) the ethanoic acid dissolves readily in water.

(C) the solution becomes light orange.

(D) water floats over the surface of ethanoic acid.
